Summer Zone will emphasize technology
Keeping their kids mentally engaged and physically active as well as entertained over summer break is always a challenge for parents. But District 7’s 2013 Summer Zone meets all of these requirements and more with its new programs featuring EHS student athlete sports mini-camps, computer lab access, Passport to the World as well as a partnership with SIUE to use its recreational facilities.

Top 10 Reasons to Choose District 7 Summer Zone 2013
"Hair Raising" Compassion
Two Nelson students thought more of others than of themselves! Last month Haley Mollet and Scott Wilfong decided that they wanted to help children who are losing their hair due to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Both students were brave enough to get a “buzz” cut in order to give their hair to cancer patients!
We are so proud of their choice to “give back” and to take our hats off to their wonderful display of compassion for others!
Over 50 students participated in Nelson’s Learning Fair! Our students came up
with great ideas on research projects and conducted experiments to determine if
their hypothesis was correct. So……how many inches down does corn have to be
planted in order to grow? What happens to flowers when they sit in colored
water? Do larger balloons take longer to land than smaller balloons? How are
rainbows created? Why do some objects float and other sink in water? What food
coloring can be tasted in rice crispy treats? How do clouds more around the
Earth? So, so, so many questions!!!
